Antarctica Awaits

Travel to the ends of the earth to explore the White Continent, where you will discover the majesty of this icy frontier on an unforgettable adventure through sea and snow aboard the state-of-the-art Ultramarine yacht. Our intimate group will have the chance to see orca whales and leopard seals on the hunt, and charming penguins as they build their rookeries across the snow—and much more—all while enjoying expert guidance from biologists, glaciologists and environmentalists who know just how special—and vulnerable—Antarctica truly is. 

A spot on this trip may be reserved with a 50% non-refundable deposit, per person, with the remaining balance to be paid in full by July 15, 2023.

Highlights of this itinerary include the opportunity to:

You’ll have the chance to sail aboard a state-of-the-art polar-travel vessel (equipped with two twin-engine helicopters), which offers a robust portfolio of adventure activities and luxurious, modern suites, breathtaking public spaces, and more outdoor wildlife-viewing spaces than any other expedition ship of its size.
  • Enjoy daily zodiac sailing excursions, hiking trips and helicopter flight-seeing over the true final frontier of Planet Earth: the White Continent. As you venture on this trip of a lifetime, you can marvel at giant icebergs rising out of the ocean, orca whales and leopard seals on the hunt, and charming penguins as they build their rookeries across the snow—and much more—all while enjoying expert guidance and lectures from biologists, glaciologists, and historians, who will provide essential context regarding Antarctica’s wildlife and ecology.
  • Travel in good conscience, knowing that your entire trip has been set up as a carbon-neutral expedition, designed by our team with special care to reduce unnecessary energy waste.
